DESCRIPTION The explain_tcsendbreak_or_die function is used to call the tcsendbreak(3) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_tcsendbreak(3) function, and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE). The explain_tcsendbreak_on_error function is used to call the tcsendbreak(3) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_tcsend‐ break(3) function, but still returns to the caller. fildes The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the tcsendbreak(3) system call. duration The duration, exactly as to be passed to the tcsendbreak(3) system call.

The explain_tcsendbreak_on_error function always returns the value return by the wrapped tcsendbreak(3) system call.
